Dwynne, while I agree with Dave re a 1TB SSD, one thing I would stress to your daughter is that using an SSD brings a requirement to have a very regular backup regime. SSDs die without warning, while HDDs tend to throw errors or make noises before they die. I’d also suggest that from time to time your daughter runs a slideshow of her backed up photos – there is nothing more frustrating than to discover that a back-up photo is corrupt and that the master has been wiped!
